>>> taxes, education, reproductive rights when you're mitt romney what's wrong with a little change of heart? it's wednesday, october 10th, and this is "now." >>> joining me today, msnbc political analyst and georgetown university professor michael eric dyson, the golden throat. the host of msnbc's the cycle steve kornacki, msnbc contributor and queen bee of thegrio.com joy reid and new york times magazine editor mr. sunday morning himself, hugo lingren. there are 27 days to the election, meaning we still have time for 27 new and exciting policy shifts from governor mitt romney. and who better than the country's explainer in chief to outline the paradox of the mittens. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i mean, i thought -- i thought wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you all these last two years. >> call it the merry go mitt. governor romney has completed a full 360-degree rotation, changing his views so many times on -- so many times on some of his core beliefs that he's right back to where he started decades ago.
educational programs and pell grants. they can cut those without consequences. more and more with the younger generation, they're digital. we need online registration. >> well said, by the way, in the state of california, many state legislators were saying that the reason they cut higher education for the uc system first is they figured there was the least amount of political consequence for them in doing so because young people don't vote. the case that we're making to people is not just vote because of the historical importance or because of the necessity as american citizens, but money equates to vote because they allocate money and resources on the basis of how groups turn out and that's critical. >> if they think they can cut you without consequence, they will. >> they will. >> part of the sin nichl here, too, is the youth vote was a critical vote in the 2008 elections. to this point of who is most impacted, both the people who have been getting much, much more engaged in our electoral process. these are first -- many times they're first-time voters. and what we're doing is essentially s
's just educating them. funny, the koch brothers, they say the same thing. darrell and charles koch sent a list of suggested candidates to 500,000 employees during the last election. monday, they launched a $1 million ad campaign in 13 states. they say they're just educating voters. all of these millionaire and billionaire bosses are supporting romney for several reasons. romney will cut their taxes and deregulate their industries. it's not about the workers, it's about using the workers to deliver greater wealth to these bosses. let's turn to robert reich, former secretary of labor under bill clinton and now a professor at public policy at uc berkeley and author of the book, "beyond outrage." this would take many employees, i think, to outrage, knowing that their job could be on the line if they don't vote the way the boss wants them to. mr. reich, good to have you with us tonight. do these ceos care more about their employees or their bottom line? >> ed, there's no question. they care not only about their bottom lines, but they treat their employees as costs to be cut rather than asset
security and medicare and medicaid and education and so forth come from the ground up. they're what people want, they're what people need, they're what people voted for. they're part of the fabric of american life. they're not trickle-down anything. and what the president has to do and what joe biden has to do tomorrow night is to confront that notion. joe biden has to not only defend the president and attack paul ryan for his libertarian ideas, joe biden has to defend social security and medicare and the very idea of the usefulness and the importance of government in sharing responsibility in america, a big, heavy lift for joe biden tomorrow night. >> it's a heavy lift, howard, i agree, but it's also right in his wheelhouse. everyone in this country knows his middle class background. he is true to his value of helping the middle class. he legislated that way for 30 years in the senate. some think that joe biden's been put in an untenable position, a tough position. but isn't this good for biden? and i think for the president to come out and say joe's got to be joe, that's kind of saying,
. there are, of course, moderates in iran. half of the country is weste westernized, highly educated. and there are moderates, but they don't run the country. on october 9th, 2012, who runs iran? do we still not know? >> in the intelligence business, iran is right up there with north korea as probably the hardest targets to really understand. >> certainly not ahmadinejad. >> no. supreme leader. >> it's the supreme leader along with -- >> the mullulahs. >> aren't they intimidated by the revolutionary guard? >> you've got the people financially essential to the regime. several power centers. but -- >> the supreme leader is first. and the answer is we don't really know. >> if we don't know that, the strategy here also psychological? and at what point do you start doing this publicly? isn't that a second step? start doing this publicly and aligning with the opposition publicly? isn't that to an extent potentially a destructive strategy if you're a little hand fisted about it? >> i would do it rather than later because the guys are feeling the heat. at the end of the day, mika, they've go
, she appealed for more educational funding saying children are falling behind in school. >>> the list of the most influential men of 2012. you won't believe who is o top the list, bond, james bond. but it's not the actor, just the fictional character. likely due to the new 007 film coming out. >> and finally, taylor swift is setting the record straight about crashing that kennedy wedding in august. she has been dating connor kennedy tells rolling stone it was all just a big misunderstanding. and she never showed up uninvited or wanted to upstage anyone. any ideas how she is going to write a song about this. >> is she being tarnished a little bit? >> it's too often in the news about the dating life of taylor swift. >> maybe you should write songs about it. >> maybe. >> they should call you up and get advice on dating. >> i can do a "dear abby" thing. i can start it today. >> you're on to something. hop on to your twitter page. everybody at home, hop on and ask bill on his twitter page. >> dating advice. >> foolproof. >> i'm lynn berry. stay tuned.

where they think they can make a play. he's on his way to an education roundtable and a fund-raiser and another big rally tonight planned. another thing unusual about his speech in toledo was the fact it was much longer than usual. he went 33 minutes or so. usually we get a15, 20 minutes out of him and he doesn't spend a lot of time talking about foreign policy. because the crowd saw governor romney's speech at the virginia military institute, paul ryan wanted to talk a little bit about that and perhaps giving him a little more of a chance to get some of the foreign policy stuff out there publicly. obviously, his debate on thursday with vice president joe biden will be a mix of foreign policy and domestic issues. over the weekend we asked him about his preparations for this debate on thursday and what kind of energy he expects the vice president to bring. this is what he had to say. >> well, i guess we don't have the sound, which makes for a funny joke, here's what he had to say, quiet. he said something, ron. can you tell us what he said? >> reporter: basically he expects vi
